Tech Stack Highlights

MySQL – We use MySQL for a principal data store, mainly because we inherited that from the MVP, but we don’t have many complaints about it. We’re starting to use ElasticSearch as a data warehouse for OLAP and to optimize heavy queries. It’s REST-first design works nicely for us, and the speed is unbeatable.

Play Framework – We use Play / Scala for the heart of our platform: the API. We don’t serve any pages out of play, but it works nicely to provide a REST API. Scala takes a bit of learning, but it provides OO hooks to ease you into functional programming.

Backbone.js – Most of our web app is based on Backbone, for better or worse. It was the right decision four years ago when we started using it, and holds up fairly well. It’s stable, but being so event driven can make it hard to reason about.

React.js – Newer parts of our app are being built in React, which we’re very optimistic about. We’re hoping to take advantage of code re-use by repackaging with React Native for mobile app use.

Amazon Web Services – We run everything on AWS, which makes life easy, if sometimes expensive. We’re trying to avoid vendor lock-in by steering clear of their branded products as much as makes sense, and instead using plain old computer resources. Jenkins runs our continuous integration, which is a hugely important part of our process. As an agile shop we want to de-dramatize releases; CI makes this process so easy that it’s possible to release without worrying.
